for you this morning, will president obama beat himself in the debate? saying what a great debater mitt romney is. but some say the president should stop lowering speculat i expectations and do a little self reflection. president obama's greatest enemy isn't romney, but himself. because, shall we say, the president is quite confident. here he is at a polling station in henderson, nevada. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> he was joking but polls show that most people believe that obama will ace the debate. still, some are concerned about his tendency to appear smug, testy sb y and impatient. remember what this four years ago? >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough. >> thank you so much. >> some felt that comment oozed c condescencion and cost him the primary there. smile, make his points, but being gentile. will president obama beat himself in the debate? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses, later this hour. >>> one dramatic event can influence the outcome of any

in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h

story i heard this morning about how obama supporters felt was a friend last night after the debate, a friend said that his wife woke up in the middle of the night and she thought she had a nightmare and she actually realized she was remembering the debate. now, the -- it's a true story. now, i think there are things in that debate that will actually come back to haunt mitt romney which i'll get to, but i think president obama was so determined not to make a mistake, not to upset the trajectory of the campaign, not to look like somebody who would offend swing voters, that he went all the way over the other way. and that just didn't work. it may -- but it may work in two respects. one is, i think there are swing voters, particularly women, who found mitt romney too hot. put aside the lies -- >> bully. >> -- and the half true truths. i think they found him too hot, too energetic in an attacking way. that could have repercussions. romney left a lot of stuff on table. unfortunately, president obama didn't answer it last night, but i still think he has real problems on the tax program. i
